The producers of the forthcoming Oscars telecast Friday announced the first slate of award presenters.

The list released by producers Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd includes Mahershala Ali, Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Laura Dern, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone and Daniela Vega.

“Whether returning to the Oscars stage, or gracing it for the first time, each of these artists bring their own distinguishing and energetic appeal,” said De Luca and Todd in a statement. “Their contributions will make for an unforgettable evening.”

The 90th Academy Awards ceremony presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will honor the best films of 2017 and take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on March 4, again hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. It will be aired on ABC.
